How To Defeat Chapter 6 Boss Hiroki Demon In Trek To Yomi
Unlike the last two boss fight encounters which took on more mystical and demonic appearances that were reflected in their movesets, Ara-Mitama is a much more straightforward sword fight. Both Ara-Mitama’s greatest strength and greatest weakness are that he utilizes many of your own combos against you. These can be very dangerous as these attacks are very quick and can string together a lot of damage, but at this point in the game, you should recognize most of these moves and have your ability to parry nearly mastered. Since he can only engage you up close, back up and get some ranged attacks in, whether it be the Ozutsu, arrows, or Bo-Shurikens. these can help widdle the Hiroki Demon’s health down without having to constantly engage him up close.
If you are confident with your parries, you can parry all of Ara-Mitama’s attacks and follow up with a quick combo. Don’t get greedy and overextend yourself, however, since you will get punished for attacking too long, so make sure you get make your distance and use those ranged attacks. If you find yourself in the corner, use your dodge roll to get past the Demon and get your spacing back. Keep this up until you get his health bar to zero.
Once defeated, the Demonic version of Hiroki will turn into his younger self from Chapter 1 and will be joined by the spirits of Aiko and Sanjuro. At this point, you will be given the chance to choose between three Paths: Love, Duty, and Fury. This decision will decide which ending you get and will end Chapter 6.
